Camping Classics: Everyone Loves Hot Dogs

Janet Groene’s
New York Style Hot Dogs
    To win the wiener derby you begin with top quality hot dogs and buns and end with a sensational sauce like this one. It’s easily made in camp or you might make it at home, keep it cold and re-heat it at the cookout. 


2-3 large sweet onions (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup cold water
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon each balsamic vinegar, dark molasses and prepared mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Salt, pepper to taste


    Peel and trim onions and cut them in crescents. Sizzle onions in hot oil, gradually stirring in garlic. When onions soften, cover and cook over low heat. Onions should be very tender but not browned.
    In a bowl whisk water, cornstarch, ketchup, vinegar, molasses, mustard and cloves. Stir into onions over low/medium heat until sauce thickens. Adjust seasonings. Spoon sauce over hot dogs. Makes enough for 6 to 8 hot dogs.
